A new technology could potentially make smartphone batteries last three days, as opposed to one day in the case of the typical batteries of today. The secret is replacing the graphite anode typically used in Li-ion batteries with an anode made of silicon, manufactured through a novel method from common sand.
LG Display announced today breakthroughs in the manufacturing of large flexible and transparent OLED panels, opening the way for the commercial production of truly flexible, see-through displays in as little as three years.
Display makers often throw around terms like A-Si, IGZO, or LTPS. But what do these acronyms actually mean and what’s the impact of backplane technology on user experience? What about future developments?
Mobile devices powered by memristors will boast huge storage, but benefits could also include lower prices, faster operation, greatly improved battery life, and better integration with the cloud.
